I hope everyone had a great weekend and is enjoying the cooler weather this week!

In case you didn’t make it out to Guthrie Green on Saturday, here are some photos from Oklahoma Alliance for Animal’s adoption event, Rock & Rescue. More than 100 homeless animals were featured at the event and according to the group’s Facebook page, at least a dozen pets found new homes.

This year’s 6th annual Rock & Rescue hosted by Oklahoma Alliance for Animals is set for July 13 at Guthrie Green from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I look forward to this event every year and love that it brings area rescue groups together.

The event focuses on adoption of homeless pets from more than a dozen area rescue groups, though attendees are invited to bring their own pets as well.

The pet-friendly event in the park will include music, food and pet related vendors.

OAA will be offering $25 microchipping and all proceeds will benefit OAA in their mission to overcome pet overpopulation.

Hope to see you all there!

TBRO adoption events this weekend

If Boxers are your thing, you will want to make sure to check out The Boxer Rescue of Oklahoma’s events this weekend. Formerly known as Tulsa Boxer Rescue, the group will be showing off some of their adoptable Boxers at two adoption events in Tulsa and the Oklahoma City area.

In Tulsa, TBRO will be at Woodland Hills Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Dogs and volunteers will be set up on the lower level in front of Sears.

The group will also have dogs at the PetSmart in Yukon from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

There will be six to seven dogs at each event ranging in ages from eight months to seven years, said adoption coordinator Marilyn Maxwell via email.

Attending the Tulsa event will be Kylie, Otto, Scotty, Pistol, Tot, Mack and Boomer.

In Yukon, Hope, Molly, Capone, Parker, Bentley and Thelma will be on site.

Adoption fees start at $75 up to $300 depending on the age of the dog and whether or not the animal is a purebred. According to TBRO’s website, all dogs are spayed or neutered, wormed, receive vaccinations, rabies, bordatella and are heartworm tested prior to adoption.

I personally love the dogs that have the smooshed faces. What cuties! I would surely take them all home if I could. If you have the space in your heart and your home, consider rescuing one of these furbabies this Saturday.

The application process can take up to five days, but you can go ahead and get the ball rolling by getting pre-approved at
